Sean Doolittle, one of the more thoughtful, articulate minds in the Nationals clubhouse, shared his reservations about baseball returning in a lengthy Twitter screed Monday.

After weeks of speculation, Major League Baseball's 30 owners finally agreed on a return-to-play proposal on Monday, and are now ready to submit it to the MLB Players Association for their approval.

Before the players even consider it, Doolittle wants to know if the following health concerns have been addressed.

Any potential return proposal will need to adequately address many of the concerns Doolittle highlights above, which goes to show just how much of an uphill battle remains for professional sports before a COVID-19 vaccine of some sort becomes available.
